I,                                                                                         , as owner of the above described facility accept the responsibility for ownership and proper maintenance of the permanent pond(s) and or other structural best management practices on the site, per the approved and designated maintenance plan and schedule shown below.
I will complete any necessary repairs and/or preventative maintenance procedures in a timely manner to ensure proper functioning of the pond as a stormwater management device.
It is my understanding that the maintenance plan may be amended/revised at any time by The Town of Mount Pleasant, if the current schedule is deemed insufficient, and I will abide by any prescribed changes.
I agree to perform at a minimum, unless more frequent inspections are dictated by either the system manufacturer or the Town of Mount Pleasant, an annual inspection of the stormwater facility.
I understand more routine inspections may be performed by the owner or owner's representatives on a more frequent basis; however, the annual inspection must be performed and reported on by a licensed professional engineer.
I understand that the report of the annual inspection must include the results of the inspection and remedial actions undertaken or planned.
I agree to send the inspection reports and other requested documentation to the town's Stormwater Manager for review on an annual basis or by June 30 of each reporting year.
I agree to maintain an inspection log of findings and remediations. This log shall be kept by the facility owner and transferred with the property to future owners.
I will continue to own and maintain the pond until the Town of Mount Pleasant is notified in writing of a transfer in ownership and maintenance responsibility.
The notification will include a date for the transfer of responsibility and a letter of acceptance from the new owner.

This efficiency is considered  impacted once the pond bottom has filled to                         feet/ inches. The functionality of the pond may also be impacted by other, non-sediment-related pollutants, and may require other repair or management actions.
